There have been and always will be fresh resources to explain the Apostles’ Creed. What distinguishes Dr. Venema’s volume is a timeless and less sectarian approach. This birds’ eye view of the faith presents the reader with a brief panorama of our beliefs and how they have been presented, preserved and promoted through history.Venema would have us see that the Reformed faith, by and large, fits well with all streams of Christian history faithful to God’s word. That makes this book an excellent resource for high school study (such as a catechism class), new members in the church, and a first doctrinal guide for teachers.
Don’t hesitate to give this book to your pastor: he will read it and enjoy handing it out to those with basic questions about our faith. Don’t hesitate to give it to a teenager: especially if you hope that such a one will find confidence that our faith isn’t just a culture or tradition. - Rev. Zachary Anderson
